william f. buckley jr., that irresistible renaissance man, but no one until david frisk has given us an in-depth portrait of the other bill, william a. rusher, who among his other salutary contributions played a pivotal role in the life of the national draft goldwater committee. and that was critical. because if there had been no draft goldwater committee, there would have been no presidential candidate barry goldwater in 1964. and if there had been no candidate goldwater in 1964, there would have been no president-elect ronald reagan in 1980. it was goldwater, you see, who approved reagan's famous a time for choosing television address which made reagan a political star overnight and led to his running for governor of california and eventually president of these united states. david recounts how bill rusher shored up the goldwater committee when money ran short and spirits sagged. skillfully guided young americans for freedom if his early, chaotic days, enforced some order and discipline on the blythe spirits who ran national review, expanded a conservative movement through the tv program

by the affected accent of the young john kerry, an across between the kennedys and william f buckley, i don't know how you pull that one off. clearly it's worn off since. look, he was a presidential candidate of a major party and he ran, you know, a reasonable campaign. he had the approveation of a large number of americans and even though it was appalling performance and a young man with great ambition and we know those were based on the so-called winter soldier testimony which has been greatly discredited so i think what the country has done is say, look, and john-- i mean, john mccain and others have made that -- their peace with the vietnam era. so we recognize that was a long time ago, there was a lot of extremism and that was in our past. i think he now represents sort of the mainstream of liberal thinking on foreign affairs and i think he will be confirmed, but let me just add one thing, i don't think it matters. of all the national security appointees, he will probably have the least influence because obama runs that kind of operation, foreign affair stuff, state department stuff out of th

, william f. buckley had to write a stirring defense of ronald reagan. reagan refused to shut down the government. he decided he had to raise taxes in california because he worked with democrats as well. that's one of the great frustrations i've had as conservative as i am. i've had young republicans on my show that have come on and said they will not vote for a revenue increase, a tax increase no matter what. they won't compromise on guns no matter what. they won't compromise with democrats no matter what. and i have to politely remind them that we actually inherited for better or worse -- i think for better -- the government of james madison. the constitution of james madison. we've got checks and balances. ronald reagan understood that. if that's who we republicans want to claim as our hero, let's take a closer look at the record of reagan. on taxes, on budgets, i would say on assault weapons especially right now for a republican party that seems to be veering, i think, dangerously close to territory post-newtown, that could cost them a lot of swing seats. we have got to learn w
